What Do You Serve at a Downgrade Party?

DRUDGE REPORT 2011® Answer: Bondbonds.

Sometimes the only option is humor.  Maybe it’s time to laugh . . . at ourselves, at our pre-occupations, and at our president.

We elected him. And, in a republic, you always get the leadership you deserve.

Now what?

Now focus. Public displays of anger only hurt us. Anger is a tactic.

Yes, I’m angry. Furious. But acting out on anger does us no good.  Instead, wise men and women focus that anger into a steely resolve to electorally destroy the cretins that destroyed America’s credit rating, liberty, and economy.

What makes United States Marines, Rangers, Delta Force, SEALs, an the like so deadly is not bloodlust . . . it’s discipline.  Had an angry mob descended on Usama’s compound in May, he’d be alive and the mod would be dead.

Steely determination to electorally destroy.  Lacking that discipline will hurt the cause.

The next meeting is September 15 at 7:00 at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Clayton.  Please bring a cold, steely resolve.  But leave room for a warm smile for friends.

WSJ.com Alert:

Markets react:  DJIA plummets from +23 to –22 in seconds after S&P drops Spain’s debt rating. And the sovereign debt nightmare is only beginning.  The UK is next.  But the USA borrows more money faster than anyone, and Socio-History blog ain’t happy:

As I pointed out yesterday, US debt threatens to end the economic stabilization.  You cannot borrow your way to prosperity.
